More Music is hosting two great gigs for folk music fans this February, which are the Hothouse Ceilidh on 8 February and young folk duo David Gibb and Elly Lucas on 15 February.  Both gigs take place at the Hothouse on Devonshire Road in Morecambe.

On Saturday 8 February at 8pm, the Hothouse Ceilidh welcomes back the Wierdstring Band after their riotous performance at More Music last year, this time supported by Folk to Folk.  Expect the usual Wierdstring brand of Cumbrian inspired fun and frolics playing a mix of traditional and modern tunes to dance to.  Sense of humour essential and all ages welcome!  Tickets cost £8 (£5 concessions) and can be bought in person or by calling 01524 831 997.

On Saturday 15 February at 8pm, exciting young folk duo  David Gibb and Elly Lucas will play live, performing a mixture of original and traditional folk music.  Their career was kickstarted by a BBC Young Folk Award nomination in 2011 and since then they released two albums to critical acclaim and received extensive national radio play.  The Independent described them as ‘the future of folk’ and they have been highly praised and supported by BBC DJs Mark Radcliffe and Bob Harris.  Tickets cost £8 (£5 concessions) in advance and can be bought online at www.moremusic.org.uk/gibb-lucas, in person or by calling 01524 831 997. On the night of the gig, tickets will cost £10 (£8 concessions).
